National Day of Prayer and Fasting 2019

Prayer Points

From Ps Barry Silverback
International Missions Director

  1. The strengthening spiritually, emotionally and physically of all our pastors, missionaries, teachers, children’s home careers and workers, along with their wives and children. Many are under spiritual attack and struggling in these areas. (A renewing Morale).

  2. For a fresh new wave of a spirit of evangelism and a fervent passion for the lost to re-visit our churches and training programs and our youth, moving them afresh from passivity to purposeful affirmative action. This is critically needed everywhere.

  3. Discernment and wisdom in leaders to be able to see ahead, beyond the obvious and to be able to forewarn, give clear direction, protect and preserve the flock of God.  For all who are responsible for strategising, planning and making decisions which affects the lives of hundreds of others.

From Ps Mike Cronin
Australian Missions Director

  1. Pray for our eyes to be opened to see the amazing opportunities God has given us by bringing the world to our door in Australia, and for us to make the necessary adjustments to welcome these people into our churches and to relationship with Jesus Christ.

  2. Pray for the country/countries your church is involved in for a great expansion of the Gospel. Lift up the pastors and leaders in these nations that they may fully preach the Gospel by what is said and done, by the power of signs and wonders. Romans 15: 18-19 so that we see a global expansion of the supernatural power of God.

  3.  Ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest fields. Luke 10:2.

From Ps Bill Vasilakis
Australian National Chairman

  1. That Jesus will light a fire in the hearts of our people and all of our CRC Churches for a ‘Holy Spirit led’ book of Acts approach to every believer evangelism and church planting.

  2. That Jesus will give us his passion and burden for the entire earth and help us to see and feel with the Holy Spirit’s compassion, ‘that if our vision does not encompass the whole world then it is too small’.

  3. That Jesus will empower us and our local churches through the Holy Spirit’s presence, to personally and strategically share His Good News into our immediate local neighbourhoods and regions; as well as across Australia and in particular nations and people groups the Holy Spirit is guiding us to reach.

  4. That Jesus will open our eyes to see the Holy Spirit doors that He is opening in many nations through the immigrant and refugee peoples He is bringing into our Australian churches.

  5. That dozens of our churches and hundreds of our people will be moved to pray, give, plan and go to the nations their local churches are investing in during our 2021 Global Action Initiative.

Prayer Points

From Ps Barry Silverback
International Missions Director

That the church at home and abroad rise aggressively and forcefully to pray purposefully, persistently,and persuasively on behalf of God’s leaders, His people, and His work in the nations because we are under spiritual attack both from without and within. We are in spiritual warfare and need to enforce Christ’s victory.

From Ps Mike Cronin
Australian Missions Director

The church to stand firm on Biblical values and reject the self indulgent secularism that is pervading our society. The church rise as the blessed people to be the blessing of God to all nations. Genesis 12:1-3.

From Ps Bill Vasilakis
Australian National Chairman

That a burden of prayer will grip our CRC churches for our needy nation of Australia, and that a passion for evangelism will grow in our people to share their faith and lead their lost loved ones and friends to Jesus.

That our CRC Movement will be greatly encouraged and empowered to better fulfill its spiritual vision through our Effective Leaders/Effective Churches Pastors & Leaders National Conference this October. Pray especially for many to receive Jesus’ call to full time ministry and missionary service. 

That our CRC 2018-2023 Australian Strategic Directions being released at the October Conference will help all our ministers and churches to better work together to accomplish our collective growth plans and faith goals. Pray especially that the CRC will plant new churches that will impact their communities.
